    any other stores besides SW carry navy and/or burgundy boat shoes? or is it just black and brown everywhere else?

    Just bought the Quoddy brown bluchers from South Willard. These are just what I have been looking for. Casual rubber soled shoe that's not a boat, sneaker, or boot.

    haven't seen the navy ones anywhere but SW, most likely made just for them by quoddy. Call up quoddy and ask them, they are extremely nice and could possibly even make you a pair if they have some extra leather lying around.

    SW didn't have my size in the navy so I order them direct from Quoddy. Took a couple months to get them but I'd say they're worth it. Very well made.

    Does anyone have pics of the burgundy boat shoe? I'm curious to see what these look like. Is it a dark, almost-brown burgundy, or something brighter?

    Received my black blutchers from South Willard last week. Along with my 5EPs and Engineered Garments outerwear, they are in the category of "must be seen in person to fully appreciate".

    They're perfect, pretty much like oxblood.

    I'm kinda interested in the ring boots.

    Other thoughts? How do they look in person?

    I got my bluchers today, and damn, they are awesome. The leather is extremely soft, they are probably the most comfortable shoes right out of the box I've ever worn (I walked 2 miles in these today and felt great), and the color is amazing. The brown has definite hints of red and an amazing texture. What should I do to take care of these?

    They're pretty cool, very unique in person. I think they would look great with denim, might try them on if I go down there this weekend. The rings are a nice touch.

    The burgundy ones are amazing, would get over brown all day every day.

    Also they look much better in person than those pics which seem to distort the true shape of them.


    did you order them directly from quoddy? i would love to see a pic. i think i'd be happy with either the brown or the burgundy. just don't wanna wait for months to get them though...

    jet, what'd you think? i need to plan when i can get up to SW to try them on too. maybe a Barney's sale --> SW --> vintage shops trip.

    I don't have them because my size sold out a long time ago, I just handle them whenever I go they're lovely and dirt cheap imho. The burgundy is beautiful, I would never get brown.

    I think you should check them out, they're one of those things that if you try them and you like them, everyone will follow suit. I have too many shoes so I'm cutting back myself.

    Has anyone picked up the brown/burgundy boat shoes w/ the siped (white) sole? I'm curious what these look like with darker denim and/or shorts. They look great, but not sure about $125 great :p

    Thanks!

    can anyone recommend some kind of leather protector to apply to my quoddy's? or is it even necessary?

    I would say it isn't necessary with a boat shoe. They look better with character.

    Character and cracked leather are different all together.

    Condition them with a leather conditioner and a clear paste polish every now and again. Don't be afraid to get them dirty and dusty but, cracked leather just makes anything look cheap.
